NEW YORK, NY (August 8, 2011) - Project Runway fans -- and more than a dozen of the Emmy(R) Award-nominated series' past contestants -- will have to wait no more. Lifetime today announced the new judges, mentor, host and 13 of the show's most talented, memorable, opinionated, adored and feared designers as contestants for its eagerly anticipated all new unscripted series, Project Runway All Stars.

World-famous designers Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman will serve as judges on the new series, which will be hosted by supermodel Angela Lindvall and feature fashion tastemaker and Marie Claire Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles as mentor for the Runway veterans. Project Runway All Stars will premiere later this year on Lifetime.

With a clean design slate, a fresh perspective on their art and a different mentor providing her own counsel and insight, the 13 designers set to have another judgment day by proving they still have the innovation, talent and poise that made them household names will now have to meet even higher expectations from Mizrahi and Chapman. The Project Runway All Stars designers include:

Austin Scarlett (New York) - Season One, Fourth Place - Winner of Project Runway's first ever challenge, Austin wowed judges and viewers alike with his eccentric ball gowns and ability to produce glamorous fashions under tight deadlines, including a gown made entirely out of cornhusks.
